honesty

Soul work

When we stop wishing to harm each other through shame and blame. When we realise that, as someone said yesterday, diversity is life and life is diversity. When we realise there’s nothing to fear and everything to love.

That’s when change will happen. That’s everybody’s soul work.

The Vote, the police and the complexity of trust

Police-crest-and-badge

Once again I cringed my way through The Vote last night as the programme limped it’s way through the moot, “Are the police losing our trust?” As usual, the moot was confusingly negative in that it could easily be misunderstood — “Do we trust the police” would have ensured a more reliable outcome.

But what really bugged me was that the debate continually confused the police/justice system with the people who work within it. More disturbing though was that the notion of trust was never explored.
